Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When first published in 1984, Roger Bilstein's Flight in America was widely hailed as the foremost history of what is arguably the most remarkable achievement of the twentieth century--human flight. Now, in this newly revised and expanded edition, Bilstein continues his comprehensive history to the closing decade of the present century and offers a glimpse of developments in the next.

The most comprehensive survey of the history of American aeronautics and space flight yet published.--Technology and Culture.

Bilstein casts wide and far to net virtually everything from technological trends and research and development to the effect of air travel on the expansion of major league baseball in the 1950s and early 1960s... A superior work that will satisfy aero buffsand professionals alike.--Journal of American History.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references p. (359-380) and index.
